How does affiliate marketing work?

Unless you have been completely offline in the last couple of years, you must have heard about affiliate marketing. Many of the worlds biggest sites are using affiliate marketing as their primary source of income. But do you know how it works?

First of, what is it exactly?

The most basic explanation is: getting paid, recommending other peoples products or services. 99% of the time it is done online and tracked through tracking systems.

There are parts in an affiliate offer: the advertiser, website, buyer and the affiliate network.

The affiliate is usually the website owner, who is promoting/recommending the products. The webmaster reviews the products that are then sold on the advertisers website.

The advertiser can be any sort of business that is offering anything – from pet supplies to law services.

The affiliate networks is where the rubber meets the road. This is where all the offers are listed and the tracking takes place.

With more competition on the marketing every day, it is absolutely essential to have the right process in place and the best way to do that is to learn from other experience marketers in the business.

We can recommend 2 good sources that you can follow whether you are just starting out or already have any sort of business and just want to scale your business.
